    Has anyone else noticed the actual handset speaker (not the speaker on the back, the normal hold to your head to talk bit, whatever its called) steadily gets quieter as the G1 gets older, damn annoying.

    A sign of age I'm afraid, it happens to us all.

    It was a hint at your hearing, not the phone. Bit too subtle I guess

    I have had my G1 since last year, and I havent noticed any drop in volume in the phone. I have a nasty habbit of hoovering dust out of most of my hardware once a month, laptops, desktops, keyboards, mice, phones etc. Maybe that could help?

    I haven't noticed, but then again, I hardly ever make phone calls.

    Can't say I've noticed that, had my G1 since mid december. I will try and remember whether I notice that now when I make phone calls.

    There isn't really anything electronic in the system that can age or deteriorate to decrease the volume (with one exception that I can think of). The electronics and interconnections would more likely fail or go intermittent (crackle) rather than to slowly decrease in volume. Even if output capacitors were leaky you'd get a phase shift in frequencies -- you'd get tinnier sound, not decrease in volume.

    The only thing I can think of that would decrease volume is come kind of gunk coating the speaker diaphragm. Do you live or work in an area of high levels of industrial pollution in the air or other airborne chemicals? High dust or other airborne particulate levels?

    If not, it's a much more likely situation that something's happening to your own ears or your perception of sound.

    I was going to say the same thing. The G1 makes phone calls ?

    I have had mine since Dec. and have made only about 30 calls, no volume problems.
